  1. Alright,
    I want to know how to move a game (Faces of War) that is already installed on one computer onto another computer and then play it..

    here's the kicker; the CD.... is broke, hehe.
    i have the cd key and am currently using a no-cd crack to play it.

    is it just a matter of putting the whole folder and files onto a jumpdrive, and then moving it into the Program Files area on the new computer? or what?

    any questions? just ask
    and any answers will be welcome.. except stupid ones

    How old is the game? Sometimes games tend to install registry keys, and you can't move those. How about looking at the PM box....

    If you have a CD key that you've purchased, you can contact the game company to have a new install disk.

    They often ask you to return the broken/defective game CD before issuing a new one and there is often a fee.

    Okay. I looked it up for you: Ubisoft faq.

    thanks but i already sent them a query, if they need more info then they'll contact me...but the game is a few years old so there is a chance they will not be able to help me..
